Very Fragile

“For every ethical theory developed apart from some account of transcendent truth–of, that is, the spiritual or metaphysical foundation of reality–is a fragile fiction, credible only to those sufficiently obstinate in their willing suspension of disbelief. If one does not wish to be convinced, however, a simple ‘I disagree’ or ‘I refuse’ is enough to exhaust the persuasive resources of any purely worldly ethics.” -David Bentley Hart, Atheist Delusions
